The power to protect our oceans is in your hands

The oceans need you. Actively help protect dolphins, whales and other marine animals and their ocean environment by supporting our long-term research and conservation efforts. For almost 30 years, we’ve worked hard to create effective educational campaigns based on comprehensive and transparent scientific field studies.

We are one of the world’s leading charities dedicated to the conservation of dolphins, whales and other species, but we can’t continue without the financial support of people like you. Donate today to protect the oceans you love, and to give future generations a chance to appreciate them with the same depth that you do.
